Friday, June 14, 2013 7:00pm - 9:00pm
We are greatly honored that His Eminence Choden Rinpoche has accepted to teach at Ocean of Compassion. Rinpoche will give a commentary on the Three Principal Aspects of the Path by Lama Tsongkhapa. The three aspects refers to cultivation of renunciation, bodhicitta and the correct view of emptiness.
Born in 1933 in Eastern Tibet, Choden Rinpoche was recognized at age three as an important incarnate lama, and ordained by Pabongka Rinpoche at the age of six. He entered Sera Je Monastery when he was fifteen, where he mastered all the philosophical teachings required for the highest monastic title of Geshe Lharampa. Choden Rinpoche was one of the two Sera Je lamas selected to debate with His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama during His Holiness' examination for the geshe degree. Choden Rinpoche is regarded as one of the great masters of the day, and is particularly famed for his pure moral conduct. He has taught worldwide, and at the FPMT Centers at Lama Zopa Rinpoche's request. His great insight into the Dharma and his peerless and compassionate conduct have inspired many students in the West to follow in his example to take ordination vows.
